One of my favourite documentary series ever...you couldn't write this stuff
13 May 2017 | by flb1990See all my reviews

Over the last few months, I have become obsessed with Louis Theroux and his documentaries. However, as much as I've enjoyed his recent programmes, Weird Weekends is still his Magnum Opus.

Theroux is an endearing screen presence, not to mention intelligent, funny, articulate and attractive. During WW's 3-season run, he had covered a number of interesting subjects ranging from porn to demolition derby. His non-judgemental attitude and willingness to take part makes him one of the best documentarians working today.

My favourite WW episodes are:

Looking for love Gangster Rap Black Nationalists Body building Professional wrestling Off-off Broadway Informercials Swingers

Hell I pretty much like all of them!

I hope Louis decides to do another series next year to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first series. He'll have his work cut out for him though trying to find another weird subculture to explore. Especially considering there are now channels devoted to extraordinary human interest stories (e.g. TLC).
